Alessandra Bernasconi Carisch,
M.S. , Licensed Massage Therapist, Reflexologist, Usui Reiki Master, Nutrition and Herbal Supplement Consultant

Hi, my name is Alessandra, and I am a Therapist and Health Consultant with over
20 years of training and practice both in Europe and the United States. My holistic approach to health and wellness has evolved from my Medical School training (University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland), a Master of Science in Psychology, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA and various studies and degrees in Massage Therapy, Reflexology, Reiki, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Herbal Supplements and Nutrition, including years of personal practice with Meditation and various Movement/Dance Therapies.

When I was in Medical School I realized that I wanted to focus on promoting well-­-being and on preventing rather than treating disease. I am very passionate about learning to understand the multidimensional mind-­-body issues of living and working in today’s fast-­-paced world. I find that feeling our best is not defined by abstinence from all that might be considered unhealthy, but is achieved by striving for balance in our lives.

Bodywork such as Massage, Reflexology and Reiki support the balancing process and promote awareness on the physical, mental and emotional level and should be considered an integral part of any wellness program. Sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of most health conditions. Invest in your health, and call us to find out how we can support your goals!
